To Those I Love (by Isla Paschal Richardson)

If I should ever leave you whom I love,

To go along the silent way,

grieve not,

Nor speak of me with tears,

but laugh and talk

Of me as if I were beside you there.

(I’d come – I’d come, could I but find a way!

But would not tears and grief be barriers?)

And when you hear a song or see a bird I loved,

please do not let the thought of me be sad…

For I am loving you just as I always have…

You were so good to me!

There are so many things to say to you…

Remember that I did not fear…

It was just leaving you that was so hard to face…

We cannot see beyond…

But that I know:

I loved you so – ’twas heaven here with you!
